Intelligent IoT Projects in 7 Days

By: Agus Kurniawan

Overview of this book

Intelligent IoT Projects in 7 days is about creating smart IoT projects in just 7 days. This book will help you to overcome the challenge of analyzing data from physical devices. This book aims to help you put together some of the most exciting IoT projects in a short span of time. You'll be able to use these in achieving or automating everyday tasks—one project per day. We will start with a simple smart gardening system and move on to a smart parking system, and then we will make our own vending machine, a smart digital advertising dashboard, a smart speaker machine, an autonomous fire fighter robot, and finally look at a multi-robot cooperation using swarm intelligence

Vehicle plate number detection

A smart parking system ensures all activities take place automatically. Rather than reading a vehicle plate number manually, we can make it read a vehicle plate number using a program through a camera. We can use the OpenALPR library for reading vehicle plate numbers.

OpenALPR is an open source automatic license plate recognition library written in C++ with bindings in C#, Java, Node.js, Go, and Python. You can visit the official website at

We will install OpenALPR and test it with vehicle plate numbers in the next section.

Installing OpenALPR

In this section, we will deploy OpenALPR on the Raspberry Pi. Since OpenALPR needs more space on disk, make sure...
